I have been a member on here for quite some time, but mainly just reading and learning all has to say and speak about. I'm about to start my BSN program this July 2009 in which it would take me two years to finish (I already have the first year knocked out due to all my transferred courses). I absolutely love going to Borders book store and always find myself in the medical/nursing section. I always pick up some of the nursing books and would absolutely LOVE tp purchase some, but they are always so expensive. So, I have decided to wait until I get a coupon for a percentage off of a book. Well, now's the time I finally got a 30% coupon off of a book, so my question to you all is: Throughout your nursing education and/or nursing career, what educational books can you NOT live without? Or what books helped you so much throughout school that you'd recommend them to anyone else going through nursing school? I've heard of the "Incredibly Made Easy" series and just received my first issues of the following magazines: Nursing Made Incredibly Easy, Nursing 2009, and AJN (which I absolutely love all three of them, especially the Made Easy ones).
Thank you all and I look forward to reading your suggestions on recommended nursing books. Please let me know why you would recommend those books, also.
